Hydrothermal combustion synthesis and characterization of Sr2CeO4 phosphor powders


In this paper, the blue-light-emitting Sr2CeO4 phosphor powders were prepared by hydrothermal combustion reactions and a subsequent sintering process. During the process, the mixed urea and glycine were both used as leavening agent and fuel. The particle crystallization, surface morphology as well as the luminescence intensities of the Sr2CeO4 phosphor powders were effectively improved by adjusting the amount of glycine and post-sintering temperatures. The Sr2CeO4 phosphor exhibited strong crystallization and well-distributed spherical particle after optimization. Moreover, the intense blue-light emission band with the maximum at 468 nm in the range of 400-600 nm was observed as excited with ultraviolet light 277 nm. In particular, after the precursors were heat-treated at 1100 degrees C, the samples could be well-excited around 350 nm. The excitation bands were ascribed to the charge transfer from O to Ce, and the enlarged excitation range may facilitate its uses in optoelectronic fields.
